Estate Planning

You work hard for your family, and you will find comfort in planning for their long-term well-being and financial security. Through analysis, we strategize the best means for protecting your loved ones at every turn.


A will is essential at every stage of your life. Your living will sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity.

Our firm will draft valid wills that ensure your intentions are honored, as well as offering opportunities for changing your will. We draft valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.


If you have children who are minors, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. Appointing a guardian is crucial in the event of the loss of one or both parents. Without proper appointment of a guardian by the parents, the court will appoint a guardian if the need arises. Guardian appointment for pets is also possible.

For estate planning services, call us today at 573-335-8278 or contact our firm online to schedule a free consultation.


Mediation is a negotiation process during which a neutral mediator facilitates effective conversation between two disputing parties. The goal is for the two opposing parties to reach a settlement and the decisions for the case will be made entirely by the two disputing parties, the mediator acting only to maintain effective and civil communication between parties.

James Frederick Waltz aims to provide fruitful discussion between parties so that every conversation grants a opportunity to benefit our clients to the best and most fair outcome.
